We wish blue skies, a warm sun, and a tailwind to Scott; may he fly high and fly free.
Scott Lee Screptock, (10/5/1961 to 3/6/2022 of Holland, Michigan) died at age 60 of a sudden heart attack at his mother’s home in Reno, Nevada. Scott is greatly loved and will be missed by many people across the country. He was a gentle and loving person with a great sense of humor. Scott was a registered organ donor, and already two people have better sight because of his gift.
Scott was born in Wurzburg, Germany to military father Lawrence John Screptock (deceased 1972) and Dorothy Screptock. He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Charlotte Diane Screptock, daughter Melinda, and son Larry, all of whom live in the Holland, Michigan area. His siblings are Michael, Steve and Lisa.
Scott’s grandchildren all live in Michigan as well. They are Jaidyn, Zoie, Charlee, Isabella, and Andrew.
Scott returned to Germany as an adult in the Army. He lived in Texas, Kentucky, Alabama, and Georgia growing up. As an adult he lived in Texas, Louisiana, and Michigan. He inherited his love of flying (he held a private pilot’s license for many years) and photography from his father. He was nurtured into the construction industry by architect Paul Lyons.
As a builder, Scott was most proud of his work on the Morten H Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, an IBM building in Canada, a Grand Rapids Waste Overflow Retention Pumphouse, and the complete conversion of The Ladder Factory in Holland into retail business space. As part of Blue Star Enterprises Inc, in Holland, Scott was well known in the community and obtained a State of Michigan Builders License to maintain their properties.
Scott was a volunteer for the Reno Air Races Association and served on the pylon judge team for 15 years. He frequently assisted during pylon racing seminars in the spring. The race being a joy of his life, a celebration of his life is being planned for Reno in June—specific dates to be determined.
The family sends many thanks to the 911 responders (firefighters, Remsa, police officers, grief counselor, and medical examiner) who did everything they could for Scott, his mother and sister.
